Cinema WORKSHOP with Christoph Draeger
13 to 16 Out/Fórum Lisboa
Disaster Movie
In this workshop, the mechanics of medial construction and reception will be examined from a rather detached documentary and/or experimental perspective. Lisbon had suffered one of the greatest disasters in history – the great earthquake and tsunami from 1755 – yet few tourists are even aware due to the temporal distance. We will discuss various possibilities of how to approach the subject of “shooting disaster”. Each participant is invited to document/cover/experiment with a catastrophe. Various strategies that deviate from the classic documentary like the remake or even by inventing one (disaster simulation/fiction) will be examined.
Christoph Draeger has been working on themes of disaster and destruction for the past twenty years. His conceptual projects take form in installation, video, and photo-based media to explore and critique issues pertaining to catastrophe and media-saturated culture. Draeger received the Swiss National Art Award in 1994. In 1994 and 1995 he was awarded the Kiefer Hablitzel grant, in 1996/97 the P.S.1 International Studio Program scholarship from Switzerland, and in 2004 the Bessie Award of the New York Performance Arts Association for best stage design on Miguel Guettierez’ Damnation Roat at the Kitchen in New York. Since 2015, Draeger is a full professor at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts in Sweden. He lives and works in Umeå and New York.
